Description: Cafe Sole has captured the hearts and palates of locals and visitors lucky enough to discover this culinary gem off the beaten path. By combining his French mastery of sauces with fresh locally caught seafood, John has created a menu unlike any on the island, where every dish is bursting with indescribable flavors. Mutton snapper in pesto and champagne, yellowtail in a beurre blanc of lobster or a rare hog snapper with red pepper zabaglione top a list of nightly specials. As for the classics, the Duck a L'Orange, Rack of Lamb with herb de Province and Lobster Bouillaise are as authentic as you will find this side of Paris. Chef Correa combines the best of both of his worlds, European and Caribbean to win the People's Choice and Best Entree awards at a recent Master Chefs Classic

Cafe Sole is one of those out of the way places that is worth a visit. They have a wonderful selection of wines to choose from. The staff is wonderful. My husband had their beef carpaccio and I had their tuna tartare. Both were delicious and of course we both had their hogfish for dinner which was served piping hot. The flavor of this fish cannot be beat. Always wonderful. Whenever we are in Key West we make sure we dine here at least once.

I’ve dined at Cafe Sole each time I visit Key West. My favorite is their special entree Hog Snapper. It was delicious and served with an array of fresh homestyle fresh vegetables. They also have a good Wine selection. It’s more comfortable inside especially in hot weather. The porch is nice but can be hot. I wold recommend you try this quaint restaurant.

We were staying in a B&B in Old Town and this restaurant was recommended by the owners. With so many wonderful restaurants to choose from in the Keys you can get a little spoiled. Cafe Sole was no exception, everything was delicious. Great wine list, fresh catch prepared beautifully and nightly specials to explore.

The HOGFISH was absolutely delicious! And the Key lime pie was as well. Excellent service, top notch cuisine and great wine list.

This was our second visit and it was even better than I remembered. The Hog Snapper was ethereal as was the setting and the service. The escargot was just OK, I would have preferred more garlic and butter in the preparation.
The desert sampler was the perfect ending.
Don’t miss this unique place.
